Yes, I am aware that it is not yet officially fall, but it's close enough. I love to bake, and I especially love to bake in the fall. Baking gets me in the fall mood. Especially quick breads. When your house starts smelling of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves, how can you not be excited that fall is almost here?
So, on Tuesday Mara and I did the first of the fall baking. I love that she enjoys doing this with me. I can remember baking in the fall with my own mom. Maybe that's why I love it so much - the nostalgia of the whole thing. So the cycle continues and I'm baking in the fall with my own daughter. I'm sure it is a cycle that goes back for many generations.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread... mmmmm.
